Generations
TakaraTomy has published a new picture of GoShooter, the Masterforce-themed recolor of Generations Nightbeat. (Which is itself a remold of Generations Bumblebee and Goldfire.) It's a really nice deco, and comes with a Mini-Con partner to represent Headmaster Junior Shuta Go. The figure is a Million Publishing exclusive and will be available to those who purchase Generations 2014 Volume 2. Keep reading to see!

KRE-O
Jacquelyn Orenza has posted more images to Facebook, this time of the new third wave of the Custom Kreon assortment. This wave focuses on the Age of Extinction Dinobots and their knightly status, and features a variety of weapons, helmets and other accessories that look like they'd have been right at home in the Dungeons & Dragons Kre-O line. Keep reading to see!
Third Party
Following teaser images of the figures to be included, Mastershooter has posted updates on their Facebook page revealing the theme of the Shooter Master set they'll be offering at TFCon in Chicago later this week. Criminal Investigation pairs "Ballgag", with coloring based on Nightbeat's Headmaster Muzzle, and "Hustler" colored after Starscream's Mini-Con Swindle. Pricing is still to be determined, but keep reading to check out the package shot and card art!
Generations
The official Transformers Facebook page has posted a set of concept sketches for Windblade, showing a number of possible design routes the toy could have taken after the more general points had been decided by openly polling the fandom. Could we potentially see one or more of the other head designs here as an alternate for a future use of the mold? And check out how many turbines Windblade's design started out with before being restrained to a more reasonable proportion! Click through to see all the images.
KRE-O
Facebook user Jacquelyn "Quelynn" Orenza has posted photos of the new Kre-O Battle Changers! Optimus Prime, Starscream, Bumblebee, and Grimlock are Kre-O mini-kits that transform without needing to be reassembled - finally! This is pretty much what what a Transformers brick set should always have been. And each set even comes with a matching Kreon - keep reading to see!
Third Party
Vangelus (you know the one) has put up a video featuring both Brawny and Backland, the Masterpiece-scale/style figures representing Brawn and Outback by Badcube, formerly known as Cubex. While the video does not entirely make it clear, these appear to be test shot figures, but should be overall representative of the production units. If Huff had poor reception enough to drive Cubex to rebranding, this video will be a big step towards determining if they've come out of it for the better. Keep reading to see the embedded video!
Age of Extinction
Our thanks to Blacklai who has shared more than one hundred photos of the Platinum Edition Dinobots Unleashed set. This set renders Grimlock, Scorn, Slug, Strafe and Slog in decos more in line with the movie's depiction of mostly colorless robot dinosaurs. These figures all feature plenty of chrome and silver paint with hints here and there of other colors in the individual decos. We've mirrored a small sample of this gallery, so click through to check them out. And if you want to see more be sure to hit up Blacklai's full gallery!
 
Third Party
Armada Starscream is a really well done Generations Deluxe, but one thing he's missing is his original Mini-Con partner, Swindle. MasterShooter Collectibles is working on fixing that, with a figure seemingly codenamed "Hustler" going by the capitalization of the word in the announcement. While not a racecar anymore, Hustler turns into a gun, which is at least just as good. You can also spy an adapter on the Mini-Con port on Starscream's left arm, which will likely let you mount Hustler in place of the traditional Starscream arm-guns. Keep reading to see the photo!
Age of Extinction
The Twitter of Japanese collector Alfes2010 has posted images of the Legendary Weapons that Takara is giving away this month. If you spend 3000 Yen or more at a given Japanese store during the month of October, you can get the Prime Axe or the Tricera Mace! Alfes has both but is having a lot more fun with the Prime Axe, showing it off with a Movie Prime as well as with both War For and Fall Of Cybertron Optimus Primes. Keep reading to see the photos!
Age of Extinction
Good news from our sponsor Big Bad Toy Store! They've just listed a new preorder for an additional run of the Bumblebee Dual Model Kit. Representing Bumblebee in his pre-AOE body style, this non-transforming model is a highly articulated frame that you build the armor on in order to complete the figure. The preorder listing has an expected arrival date of March 2015.

MasterPiece
The Year of the Goat is nearly here, and courtesy of Robotkingdom we know that Hasbro as always is readying a pair of commemorative Platinum Edition figures for Asian markets and US ToysRus stores. This year it's Masterpiece Soundwave and the Laser Optimus Prime mold from late G2. Huh? Both figures are rendered in what appears to be the official YotG color scheme, which is clear plastic and copper. ...Huh. But MP Soundwave even comes with a similarly-decoed set of cassettes! Keep reading to see the photos.
Age of Extinction
CinemaSins has posted the latest installment in their "Everything Wrong With) series, covering Transformers: Age of Extinction... and it's a two-part video clocking in at a total of 32 minutes. For comparison, the first Amazing Spider-Man film took them all of two minutes. Somehow Toy Story took them ten, so we may be looking at some editorial bloat as time goes on, but still... 32 minutes. Keep reading to see!
